This thread is meant to recognize excellent projects made by members of RMRK that exemplify what is best about RPG Maker. It thus acts to hopefully draw attention to the projects that deserve it most and secondarily to provide models for the types of games that all RPG Makers should aspire to create.

Selection:


Selection is a three-step process under the current model:
  • Nomination
  • Shortlist Generation
  • General Voting

The first step is nomination period, and this is exclusively contained within RMRK+ in order that it doesn't get flooded. If you wish a project to be nominated and are not in RMRK+, then you are welcome to PM an RMRK+ member and draw their attention to the game in the hope that they will nominate it. Note here that projects which were on the short list the previous month are disqualified for the next month for reasons explained shortly.

The second step is generating the shortlist, and this too is located within RMRK+. Basically, all of the nominated projects are then voted on by members of RMRK+ where they choose their favourite three and they must give detailed reasons for their choices - this process is not anonymous to ensure legitimacy and it is private to RMRK+ to ensure honesty. The goal of this process is to narrow the choices down to only three projects for that month. The projects that make this shortlist are not qualified for re-nomination the next month in order to ensure there is not poll redundancy, but they are once again qualified for the month after.

The third step is general voting, and this is public, meaning everyone on the forum has the opportunity to participate. The candidates for this are the three projects that made the shortlist. The results of that poll determine the project of the month! Once selected, the project of the month is then tagged and stickied for the remainder of the month and may display the POTM banner forever, as well as being put on the list of POTM winners in this post. A project can only win once.

Spoiler for Original Method:
What's going to happen is the winner of Project of the Month will pick the next project of the month. They can do this in two ways. Either direct selection (i.e. they choose a single project and that project wins) or poll selection (i.e. they choose multiple projects, and a poll is set up. The project with the most votes wins. In the case of a tie, the previous winner will be the tie breaker. If this option is selected, the nominees must be submitted seven days before the end of the month).



The Criteria:

  • A game cannot win twice
  • You cannot nominate a game which you made
  • It has to have enough material to have been moved out of New Projects section.
  • It cannot be an abandoned project


Games with playable demos are preferred, but as long as there are enough screenshots and detail, you can be nominated. If the nominated user is not active, then I will first inform them on whatever other forums they are on, and if, by the end of the month they have not come back, I will set up a poll. Also, finished games are allowed to be nominated. Games that win will be placed with a sticky and marked with the tag [POTM].

More rules will be clarified if I see a need further on. The Winner of the Project of the Month is stickied for the remainder of the month.

What of RPG Maker 2000/2003 games? You can't just leave those out because a majority of the users here use RPG maker XP. I am one of the very few here who use both 2000 and 2003.

shouldn't the people of the forum be able to vote on the project of the month? because different people have different preferences on games.

example: im making a pacman game right now. some people might think it's a whaste of time because they only like a game with a good storyline. but some poeple might think a pacman game is a great and fun idea.

just so everyone knows, im 15 years old.

Different people do get to choose. The winner each month chooses the next. There's a different winner every month, thus different people choose. Voting would be too messy, because

a) we'd need nominees. There are lots of good games out there and we can't have a poll of 30 or more games each month.
b) how would the nominees get selected?
c) what's to stop a conspiracy? i.e. 10 people get together and decide to vote on a game because one of their friends is making it, even though it is a bad game.
d)it's be an overall messy situation.

The way it's set up is better because it encompasses a range of different games, plus since the people who choose know how to make good games, they will be fairly accurate judges of what is a good game and thus, our projects of the month will always end up being good and worth checking out.

Not to be negative or anything. We only have about 12 complete projects here. So, after a while we'll run out of projects. :o

It doesn't have to be finished. Promising projects can also be nominated. And there are enough games to last us.

It appears that Blizzard is unavailable to choose next month's winner, so I will make a poll in RPG Maker Discussion and I will put up a few games that I consider worthy candidates. This is partly because I think it's a little unfair for me to choose again, but mostly because there are too many I want to award it to. Anyway,

Check out the poll:  http://rmrk.net/index.php/topic,16083.0.html

EDIT:

I am thinking of modifying the rules a little bit. What do you guys think? Should I limit selection to unfinished games, or obscure games (with, say, less than 1000 views)? I kind of like it the way it is, but I am still unsure. And please vote everybody. I do not want a tiebreak decision!

I think the rules are good the way they are now. If finished projects can't win then maybe some people wont finish it becouse they can't win anymore and that would be a shame.
I think every game should have a chance. The one who made the PotM should just be active enough to nominate a new winner. ^-^

I am somewhat biased, but I personally believe that the number of views of a thread, as well as whether a game is finished or not, should have no saying in the viability of participation in the said event.

Foremostly, it would only be sensible if all existing projects are made and released at the same time for either rules; which they are not. Because the older projects will obviously have more (in most cases) progression and page views; but the project changes as do the members that view it. Hence, the argument that 'it already has enough attention' is inevitably inconsistent in terms of time frame. Taking from my biased example; Quintessence TBV has acquired 85%+ of its views from over 6 months ago, where it was (in my present opinion) crap compared to now. I have not had the time to promote the thread in the past few months as I have been doing work on it off the net; and I believe that such rule would be rather discouraging to many of those in a similar position. And same thing with finished projects; if one actually finishes a project, shouldn't they be promoted and set a sample to us who haven't? Through my times here I've looked up to many projects and learned much from all of them. A PotM, if not just an inspiration, should certainly something that one can identify as one notable of its title, instead of "the one that's left after the rest are ruled out".

wait a sec. no offence but i see a flaw in this system.

blizzard was the first winner of potm. the game he made is an adventure game. so obbviously he likes adventure games. so he's gonna pick an adventure game as the next potm. the person that made that adventure game likes adventure games too, so he'll pick another adventure game , and the cycle continues. it's a loop, it won't stop. because: what ever type of game you like the most, you will make (it's a known fact).

here's the diagram:

Hi, there.
Makes since. I think this voting method was best. Fadark makes an exellent point. When one person has to choose. Bias comes into play. POTM should be vote only, that way it is a community decision.

While I do agree with the point to some extent, I personally believe that there are several general traits to be judged for a nomination, no matter the type of game. For example, technicality, originality, perhaps mapping, and portrayal of RM well-used overall.

Now looking at the suggestion; even if this was done by voting, the exact same bias would occur due to the fact that, in this case, the community is a RPG maker community. And the majority, would inevitably be, RPGers.

Not to mention that now when there are a lot of random people voting, the actual decision by each individual would become less and less careful as the number of participants increase; resulting in a higher likelihood for people to choose simply what game (type) they like.

Where as when an individual nominee from prior chooses, the pressure of choice is focused on the single individual, which results in a more concentrated and careful choice; because unlike the voting scenerio, the choice of the (only) individual is identifiable directly to the person him/herself (as opposed to anonymous in voting). I believe that this tends to lead to a more considerate decision in terms of overall quality of the choice as a whole.

what happens if there is a tie? or if no two people pick the same game? As well, what random process could we use to generate the comittee? What if we choose people who are not active in RM section? What if we pick two friends (any game they choose would have a good chance of winning)? By that process, I think it is too likely that undeserving games would be selected. I know that Eye of the Tiger got a serious comment saying it looked good, when even the creator made it to be bad.

Needless to say, I don't like that idea much... but I am open to suggestions. The main thing I am worried about is that the PotM has to be worthy. The idea behind this is first, it gives the creator recognition for his/her efforts, and second, that visitors to the forum who may not be willing to look through the entire forum are able to find a good game which is representative of what you can do with RM. Any method which has a possibility of selecting bad games I am not particularly open to. I wouldn't worry so much about bias. Most game creators are open to more types of games then just RPGs.

between the 10 people, we pick the person who has the most rep, and he get's the final choice between the 2 (or more) games that tied.

or if no two people pick the same game?
same as ubove

what random process could we use to generate the comittee?
the last winner of the potm picks 3, blizzard picks 2, modern algebra picks 2, and other  highly ranked people pick the other 5.

What if we choose people who are not active in RM section?
we check to make sure they are posting frequently in this section. and make sure they have enough posts

Maybe...

I don't really see how random selection can solve the problem of bias, since assuming 4/5 of the active members prefer RPGs, then it is likely that most of the comittee would prefer RPGs, since they are being selected from a population which is biased towards RPGs. It's a nice suggestion though. It's good to think about these things.

I think I am going to leave the decision of how the next winner gets picked up to the previous winner though. If Reives would prefer to form a comittee, then he can. If he wants to select directly, he can. If he wants to make a poll, then he can. I'll leave the way he selects up to him entirely. Hopefully, in the end, a wide range of game types will be represented as projects of the month.

But yeah, to summarize, I will leave the selecting of the winner to the previous winner. How he/she selects is up to them.

But... do you guys want me to set up a poll on how you think the winner should be selected? At least for Reives, I will leave the decision entirely up to him, but maybe for the next months I could implement whatever the outcome of the poll is? Maybe not?

I have to agree with fadark.

If 4/5[6] of the active members like RPGs, then you should find the other 1/5[6].
6 being neutral.

To make sure members actually look at games, and do stuff, you should at least make sure they have over 350 (more, probably) posts and just so they do know what's going on with rmrk.net, and actually look at the games (and they have to be active!), and the person with more rep shouldn't count more, that just shows the potm isn't totally fair. You should randomly pick a new member for it to break the tie, and that can't fail, because naturally, the game with more votes gets it. And there isn't a tie anymore.

It is possible for someone for someone to like more than one type of game....is it?

~Winged

Winged's got a good point there. [6]

Also, why not make sure they play the game, and require a screen shot. And not just vote for the one they did play. Rather than the one they didn't

So you'd like there to be a tie breaker that doesn't even care? It's a way to see how dedicated to RPG Maker they are, and how willing they are to help out the community.

So you'd like there to be a tie breaker that doesn't even care? It's a way to see how dedicated to RPG Maker they are, and how willing they are to help out the community.

To make sure members actually look at games, and do stuff, you should at least make sure they have over 350 (more, probably) posts and just so they do know what's going on with rmrk.net, and actually look at the games (and they have to be active!)

It is possible for someone for someone to like more than one type of game....is it?
Also, why not make sure they play the game, and require a screen shot. And not just vote for the one they did play. Rather than the one they didn't



Winged is 100% right.

~Winged

Advertisement is part of the award to the game creator, in my opinion.

Anyway I kind of like the system how it is. I mean, yes, chances are good that a majority of the winners will be RPGs, but then again a majority of RM games are RPGs, so it kind of makes sense. While yes, a single person will have bias, I don't think there is a simple solution, but I do think that the best chance for a puzzle game, or any other game, to win is through the selection of a single person, because the more people we include in the vote, the more diehard RPG fans there will be. Just look at the poll I did for May. Forlorn Manor did not get any votes, even though in my opinion it is a great game. A democratic selection process will likely result in RPGs being chosen, since that is representative of the population. But, a single game maker will likely be able to choose one that is not an RPG, since the decision is entirely up to him, and there's no certainty that he prefers RPGs over any other type of game. Fadark is a fine example. You are making three games, an RPG, an Adventure, and a Pac-man game. All three are different genres. I am sure that any winner will choose the game they feel is the best, and I don't think that all RPG makers will choose an RPG.

That's my opinion. I like the system we have. However, as I have said before, it is a community thing, and if you guys would like me to make a poll, I can.

But then again, advertisement is good, because if it's an awesome underground game, and no one saw it, it'll have the POTM on it, and more people will play it!

I'm neutral to the poll.

And Fadark, I think you're going to get a lot of reactions with your games, once they're done.
Most of all, the Pac-Man, it's never been done in RPG Maker (from what I know) and it
s clearly going to make a boom because of it's originality.

I suppose advertising is only 1 of many reasons why there is a POTM. I've noticed it shows the finer side to rmrk.net rmxp projects but it may make some other's feel excluded...

alright, I have a suggestion.
(here's what I'm probably gonna use on my site if I do POTM)

1) the project must meet requirements to be moved into Projects Main
2) the last POTM winner should choose 5 or so projects that they feel
   exemplefy the standards of POTM
3) open a poll with these 5 games to the public for voting the last week
   of the month
4) poll winner == the next POTM (in case of a tie, previous POTM winner selects
   the winner)

That seems like a good idea. The only problem I can foresee is that some people may not like 5 games on the forum, and so they might pick some of the choices randomly. That's not a very big problem of course, and it might be imaginary.

Reives has already chosen, but I think for the next months, I will just give the winners an option to either select directly, or to set up a poll between choices they think are worthy, to a maximum of 5.

ok, glad you like the Idea

I just don't really agree with the Idea the a POTM winner could just choose their friend's game instead of one that is truly POTM material
(I like site voting better, it gives a much wider idea of what the site considers POTM material)

of course it should be suggested that the winner of POTM were to select games from a variety of genre and styles, but I'm sure that given a choice, anyone who is interested would vote properly.

After all, you can't ensure everything in voting will be perfect.
(I mean, just look at America's presidential elections)

I just don't really agree with the Idea the a POTM winner could just choose their friend's game instead of one that is truly POTM material
On the contrary, I believe even more of the "choosing friend's game" would be the case for voting. Voting, as anonymously implemented, gives no actual pressure in the outcome on an identifiable individual. Hence, people are completely free to choose without discrimination of any kind; which allows the tempting choice of friends; or socially well-known individuals among the forum.  :)

On the other hand, when choosen by one person, it is publicly known that the choice is presented by the individual; hence it is heavily subconsciously questioned whether the choice is viable material or not. Under such public pressure, the individual is forced to choose one that upstands to the quality.

However, there are certain major flaws in the choice of one person as well. But in most cases, they are matched with the same sides to that of voting's (e.g. genre discrimination; RPG community = RPG oriented). But none the less, I believe that the following month's choice is an obvious one in terms of cross-genre comparison judging  by the work put to it and its presentation as a whole.

I kind of forget what everyone's talking about, but there can easily be a tie between three people. If they each select different projects for instance.

Anyways, if you are wondering why Forlorn Manor isn't stickied yet... Out of force of habit, I PMed Nouman without remembering he was on vacation. Will PM someone else now.

Everyone congratulate Anaryu for his excellent game!  ;D

Helladen, think of it this way.

Two students are turning in a paper answering why 2+2=4. One student rushed all of his work and turned in a very shoddy paper, whilst the other student took his time and put in a lot of details but has failed to actually answer the question yet. Yet is the key word here, as he still hasn't turned in his paper. Once he does turn it in, he could definitely top the other paper easily.

The moral: RMRK simply likes the details and originality of Steel Hearts over the other projects because of it's potential.

Just a small correction. Ethereal Dreams is not made exclusively by Racheal, but is a team effort produced by Team Dragonfly. I've changed it in the descriptions now, but just in case anyone saw it before, I figured I should correct that.

Well, it's March 1st somewhere.

The winner of Project of the Month for March, chosen directly by Racheal, is EPIC: Contention, by Project BC (I think that is their name; in any case, Sailerius posted it here)

Everybody be sure to congratulate them on the excellent project.

Well, the next winner has been chosen:

...but it's not April yet so I will have to suppress my excitement and keep you in suspense. In any case, to celebrate the anniversary of the Award, I made up a little banner. If any of the game creators do not want their screenshots to be used in this way, then just tell me and I will make a new one. Also, just because some of the winners are excluded from the banner does not connote anything regarding my own game preferences - just a lack of room and a lazy moderator who arbitrarily selected screenshots.


Choosing the text is hard. I've also considered this:


The text is kind of hard to read though

Yeah, too many categories I think. It's better to just have this on a yearly basis. Maybe we could make awards for games in the annual RMRK Awards maybe and include that many categories, but for a monthly thing I think it's better to keep it as it is.

Rep: +0/-0Level 85
Yeah that is true..... I just figured I would add a little.... but with myself being the 'newbie' in the forum... I figured there were many people making games left and right.... but the more I think about it.... I havent even posted my project and I have been working for months.... and im not even close to making a demo of it yet..... it would certainly make the 30 min limit but there are probably plenty of us out there perfecting their own games before they post it.... but never hurts to make a passing thought..... maybe something in the future when there are more games?

I find it quite particular, that at least a month of work, one could have a demo of their project =/ but it too depends of the troubles & activities the person does or have in RL.


I already have the demo, just planning to release at that specific day, & hopefully, no errors or delays, as a certain time in december =<

The point would be, that categories would have to be made when there's more RM users. But at the moment, the limited games that we have here & mostly that are Active, are few =/ so, a Category is like, would have to wait for a long time.



(Games cannot be repeatedly Awarded once they were chosen, so, in other words, *Example* Quitenssence was January 2007 game of the month, but it cannot be chosen as the Game of May 2008, unless, that is, the ones behind this whole thing speak for it =<)

Nah, once a project wins it can no longer be a candidate. The yearly basis thing I was talking about was maybe just making a suggestion for next year's RMRK Awards to include categories for RM games, like what hecatomb was suggesting. That would be entirely independent of PotM though, and it would just be a voting thing. In any case, it may never come about either. It was just a random thought I had in response to hecatomb's suggestion.

Yeah, I think I'll set up a poll as I don't think he will be in time. If he does before the poll closes, I'll let him choose the winner.

EDIT::
He's come back and made a fine choice. I guess I won't make a poll after all :D

No, for two reasons. A) he only told me a couple days ago and so a poll wouldn't have enough time, and B) I don't think I've ever explained this in the post, but when I send them the PM they have a few options - (1)set up a poll, (2)choose directly, waive the responsibility of choosing and either (3)send it back to me to set up a poll, or (4)select another active member to make the choice. From what I understood of his reply he chose (4) with me as the active member he selected. I will set up a poll if you want though, but I would have to leave at least 5 days.


POLL Added: http://rmrk.net/index.php/topic,28647.new.html#new

And this month's Project of the Month is:

(It's really hard to make it dramatic, seeing as you can see the name of the game already if you're really intrigued. I've considered Spoliers, but then people know it's in the spoiler and just click it without reading anyway. Then multiposting is the other option, but that's retarded. Project Leviathan, by Leventhan is the Project of the Month. But seriously, it is impossible to be discreet about it. Everyone sees the link. Everyone's clicked it. It's unfair)

Thanks Nouman!

OK, so I totally suck at this job. Nessiah chose February's winner about a month and a half ago, and it totally slipped my mind. So:


February - Legend of Vanadia, by Aten

Everyone congratulate Aten on an excellent project. I will probably leave it up a week into March to make up for the time I stole.

And for March, the Project of the Month is maxteam01's Monster World RPG.

I know, I know, I'm late all the time now. This is again, my fault only. I had intended to leave it to the 7th or so to make up for lost time to Aten, but I forgot about it even then. On a plus note, I will be making a new banner to replace the old one :)

Anyway, go congratulate maxteam01 for an excellent project

OK, also: New Banner created. As with the old one, it is a compilation of screens from a number of the PotMs; If any of the makers of the games do not wish a screen of theirs included in the banner, please just contact me and I will take it down.

Shoot, those are all so good... I'm actually fine with any of them getting it.

Oh, and the World Crafters link takes me to Anima (Still a great project, but I'm pretty sure it's finished).

Is it being finished a bad thing? A POTM can be both projects in production and already completed projects.

Didn't expect it to be nominated anyways.

In the future, let's have a topic where people can nominate games.

If we did that, it'd be like two weeks before the project actually gets picked, there'd be a dozen projects to choose from, and the results would be like 4-4-4-3-3-3-2-2-1-1-0-0. I don't think RMRK has enough interest in the PotM to do user-nominated candidates. Besides, my ego likes picking the topics.

Though, there are actually some projects I wish I had put up this time around.

If we did do it, we'd need to set some rules, like any can be nominated, but they need to be seconded or something. There might be a way to do it fairly and where it would make sense. Feel free to suggest a method in the PotM topic. I'm happy enough to consider ways to do it as long as we can assure that bad games don't have the opportunity to win and the poll isn't gigantic.

And yeah, there's no rule against Finished Projects. Five previous PotMs were finished at the time of their selection. I was going to put up a couple this time around, but given the limited number of projects I could put up, I decided not to put up anybody who had previously won a PotM.

if the person who won POTM doesn't respond by the last week of the month, then the community can nominate 5 games.

the first 5 to be nominated and seconded are put on the poll for the next POTM.

This would also give people more time to scout out the projects, rather than hastily voting at the beginning of the month.

how's that sound?

I don't like the first five games thing. It wouldn't be hard for really shitty games to be the first five nominated. I thijnk there needs to be some quality control. The rest seems alright.

That's a good idea. Maybe that's what we'll do then. I'm still hesitant about first five projects no questions asked though. Maybe we can have a system that if two or three people oppose the nomination of a candidate then it is removed. In any case, it doesn't happen all that often, so maybe I am over-evaluating the necessity for strict conditions.

The next Project of the Month will be delayed, as there has been some effort to reform the way winners are chosen in RMRK+. If you wish to suggest a new way to choose the next PotM, please post here and it will be put on the table for discussion.

P.S. I'm totally telling the truth. I'm not just trying to keep Deira up as long as possible  ::)

The new PotM selection method has found a winner:

Nora's Dragon Stories, by Japur

Everyone congratulate Japur for an excellent project!

Some comments made on the game during the selection process:

Quote from: Redwyn
The mapping = holy god beautiful. Plus, from the features list, there seems to be a good amount of animation for the characters so that's a plus.
Quote from: grafikal
I picked [Nora's Dragon Stories] because the mapping is gold and the process of entering books to find pieces of evidence and what not for the story is pretty unique.
Quote from: modern algebra
I think the frame narrative of the story is interesting and it allows the story to go anywhere, which I think is intriguing. It also adds an element of mystery to the story that I believe could lead to exciting plot developments. Even neglecting that, the mapping is top-notch and the other graphical elements are excellent. The only thing I dislike is ring selection for the menu - I think it's ugly on that background and with so much white space to the right of it. Otherwise, I really think the project has a lot of promise.
Quote from: Karo Rushe
I find it's story been simple and unique, not every day I see an RPG in which gathering proofs of dragons to make people believe is seen. I also like the atmosphere used in the maps. The Mapping itself is great and the spriting (Specifically the trees) surely caught me drooling for them.
Quote from: DeathLockBM
Imaginative, and a creative story. Even the process of the story is unique

No, not really, I took epic split and rmrk banner and offered them in the topic though. My fave is RMRK banner since it fits in with the site.

In other news, grafikal has made some lovely badges for future (and current) PotM winners. They'll look like this:

FFV-II actually looks like a damn good fangame. Spriting and systems look great, and they can't even use scripting.
Quote from: DeathLockBM
FFV-II - Sacred Chains: Excellent sprites, the systems must rely on eventing, and stands out even though its a fan-game.
Quote from: NAMKCOR
the sprites look gorgeous, the eventing work is spectacular, that's all I need ...  That, and I think it's been deserving POTM for some time now.

Some comments made during the nomination period:

Quote from: Zylos
the lighting and shadowing are extremely impressive, and coupled with the awesome Kaiser spritework he's done, he's made it a game that's simply visual eye candy. The complex detailed ABS system looks to be feat seen in very few other RPG Maker games. Just from the screenshots alone, I'd say this game is well worth waiting for.

Quote from: DeathLockBM
it doesn't limit itself to the fantasy setting, and RTP graphics. Greatly done modern maps, with HK sprites being used its graphically amazing. The ABS is excellent by the looks of it, from the screenshots and the shooting trailer

Quote from: modern algebra
It's nice to see a game which isn't to the same small scale that every other RMXP game is. The fact that everything is scaled with it and still nice is refreshing. Further, the modern tilesets are used extremely well. The weapons in the game are very cool and it's clear that a lot of detail has gone into the battle system in general. I think it is a very promising project.

Some comments made during selection:

Quote from: Zylos
The outside maps are pure gold, the music is very fitting, and the general atmosphere is just unbelievable. It was made in only a week, yet it is more fun than most of the games I've ever played.

Quote from: grafikal
I voted for irock's game because it was pretty fun ... i liked the puzzles and gameplay. The mapping was nice, though a bit cluttered at times.

The winner is NAMKCOR's Planeswalker!

Quote from: Zylos
What's there to say that hasn't already? It's a game with a captivating storyline and rather ingenious systems, not to mention the mapping and music. Just the first ten minutes alone is enough to completely astound you as to how much effort was put into it, and yet it was made in only one week. Truly amazing.
